I'm about to reveal my age here......
I was born in 1982.
Growing up, TV was so much better than it is now. It was purer, innocent, and full of good messages.
They just don't make them like they use too.
I wanted to be so many characters as a kid.
So many awesome, strong female leads in 80's TV.
I loved shows like David the Gnome.
I adored The Adventures of the Little Prince.
And people don't remember it, but I LOVED the Hugga Bunch.
People also don't remember Lady Lovely Locks.
As I got older, I loved shows like Hey Dude.
And Salute Your Shorts.
Come on...if you don't know that the term "UNDAPANTS!!!!" came from Boy Meets World, then I'm sorry...
Now, I'm a mama and I find myself watching what my kids watch. Good Luck Charlie, Austin and Ally, Girl Meets World, Dog with a Blog, etc. I don't let them watch a lot of Nick shows, because I don't think they are as wholesome as Disney. Plus, Disney isn't afraid to air controversial things, like the Good Luck Charlie episode that had the lesbian couple.
They also watch Once Upon a Time, which, let's face it, is an AWESOME show.
I love the shows I grew up watching, but I like some of the shows the kids watch. Luckily, they are good kids and pick some pretty decent shows.
I hope you enjoyed this walk down memory lane!!!
